    Hello everyone,

    I found a great documentary about the GG1 locomotive called 'GG1 - An American Classic', and in that documentary there's a song about the GG1 written specifically for that, always cut between the documentary.
    I know, there's this version, but that's just one part of the song. I was wondering if anyone knows where to get that full song, or if another version of it even exists.

    Thanks in advance!

    As far as I've been able to trace the trail, former PRR engineer Cliff Underwood wrote the song for the documentary. I think that the version you hear in it is the only version that has ever been available. Bit of a shame, it really is a good song, and the video itself is very informative.

    I see! Yes, it's a shame. Well, thanks for the answer!
    I have one question though:
    Do you by chance know if the lyrics to the song still exist?
    Thanks again!
